I don't have 4k. I'm not an early adopter. Too many issues yet to be worked out for my liking. If your run is under 25' then a certified passive high speed hdmi cable from a reputable mfr should work...

Good. I use 6' and 10' Redemere cables only because of the fexibility of the cable and the no strain on the input ends. Definitely an overkill for my length but they work just fine.

How long is your run? Do you really need to use Redmere technology?

Was the Redmere cable a direct device to tv connection? In other words, no switches involved.

LG and Samsung make their own panels as far as tv mfrs go. No panel is ideal so you need to decide what you can live with. For example, LG builds and uses S-IPS panels in some of their tv's. Samsung...

Basically if you can look up the exact model number and find it on the Samsung site then it's not a dealer specific model. Keep in mind that just because you get an S-PVA panel, that doesn't mean...

It's a little unclear to me but did the Firetv work with other devices via HDMI, or is it only the tv that it doesn't work on? I could be an HDCP issue with the 6 year old tv.

^^^^^ That is very true. We get a little more back reflective light because the tv panel is about 11" (I just measured it) away from the wall so there's a bit more light dispersal. The bias lighting...

Congrats on your decisions! As a side note, do not let BB talk you into a calibration because they do not have a good rep on providing quality calibrations.

As I said in my response above, most prefer a neutral color as opposed to a darker color but it's what feels and looks best to you. If you hang your tv on the wall, there are quite a few LED light...

As I said, the "purists" will tell you neutral and D65. Personally, I think it's what ever looks best to you and feels comfortable. Our walls are neutral (Navajo White) with 3500k LED light directly...

Interesting. I'm usually the one who complains about 11.1 and I haven't seen any issues for quite some time. We don't watch 4.1 that much but I haven't seen any "KNTV-like" issues with it either.

The purists will tell you that proper bias lighting is best when the surrounding walls are a neutral color and the light temp, behind the panel, is as close to D65 as possible.

The 2007 Panasonic probably only has an analog (NTSC) tuner so it can't decode the digital OTA signals. It's been a long time since I've shopped around for an external (ATSC) tuner but at the time,...

Thanks. I just thought I'd throw the basic definitions out there for the lurkers who get hung up on the term "contrast ratio". Probably not appropriate for this particular discussion.

HDCP2.2 is all about protecting 4k UHD content. If a 4k tv detects a 4k video source, it's going to check for HDCP, if it doesn't detect HDCP 2.2, no picture. HDMI, on the other hand, is backwards...
